Asylum law is designed to provide protection and legal status to foreigners who are fleeing persecution in their countries based on their race, ethnicity, sexual preference, and membership to a social group or religion.  

Your attorney must show that you were persecuted in the past, and that it is possible, or 1% chance, that you will be persecuted again if you return to your country.   There are deadlines and documentation requirement for which you should hire an attorney.
